Crack scripting language
Crack aims to provide the ease of development of a scripting language with the performance of a compiled language. The "crack" program is a "script executor" that compiles source to machine code on the fly (it will eventually cache the code to intermediate formats as appropriate). It can also compile a script to a native binary. The crack language itself derives concepts from C++, Java and Python, incorporating object-oriented programming, operator overloading and strong typing.
